Well... Hurricane Rita happened. Rita bearing down early last week on South Texas caused those planning on the hunt to take a second look at their travel plans. Two hard-core fellows from Oklahoma, Dave and Jack, decided that sitting in a hurricane beat work, so they started south. These two fellows had planned on borrowing 356s, so the ground rules of the hunt changed. In light of facing some forecast nasty weather, I felt better about them not making the necessary stops to borrow the rifles just to bring them into harms way. The hunt became a leveraction hunt with Dave toting his 444 Marlin and Jack his 450 Marlin.

The storm took it's turn to the north, leaving us with clear skies and some mighty high temperatures. The hog hunting hasn't been good because of this. When I put these guys on stand 30 minutes before dark last night , the temperature stood at 100F!

Here are a couple pictures from the hunt... we are only about half way through the event.
